I'm interested in using gnustep on Macintosh. I'm confused about which installation instructions I should be using. If this is not the right list for this question, please advise.

You can code interfaces with Cocoa and Xcode without IB.  Or you can use Renaissance as Greg suggested.

If you are interested in cross-platform support, then I can see using GNUstep on Mac OS X to see how the project compiles and runs under GNUstep. There are a few options for this:

Macports:  The support for GNUstep in macports is really old and I've been trying for over a year to get it upgraded.  But you can use it to get the dependencies needed for GNUstep (like tiff and libpng). Currently you'd also need to install the gcc compiler as well from Macports. GNUstep  can use the regular Apple compiler. However, when you compile dependancies (tiff and libpng) with it, it tends to pull in the Apple system libraries, which conflict with the GNUstep libraries.

A simpler method is just to download and compile the dependancies yourself. Using the Apple compiler is fine for this. Then just use the gnustep-startup package to install GNUstep.
